ONE-OFF – Prototyping
One-Offs do allow you the opportunity to test the market and your design idea before committing to a significant production run. One-off production sometimes takes longer and is much more expensive than a Mass Production, pre-production proof.
MASS PRODUCTION – We suggestted this production model.
Mass production involves the watch product going through many stages of a production line. There are workers and machines at specific steps along the path that is responsible for making certain parts of the product. This product is quite reasonably priced due to the large-scale production techniques used.
This is when a series of watch products which (which are all the same watch case) are made jointly in either large or small numbers. Once these have products, they have been made once more of the same products may be made using the same equipment. This equipment includes tools, molds, machinery, and labor.
Just in time production means just that. This involves the arrival of your watches at precisely the exact time that they are required in your warehouse. This means that less storage space is needed at your facility, so its saving space and your cash-flow.
